Am displaying the images in a SWF file, so here i want read the images from different xml files based upon the selection. So how to change the xml file name (value) in the given swf parameter value dynamically. How to read the data from different xml files into a single swf file, using C#/Javascript ???

It depends on the actual swf gallery player. It depends how it is implemented. If the xml file name is fixed, you can only change it's content. Actually you can generate it dynamically. I suppose, you use ASP.NET. Here is an example, how to generate XML on server side:[^]. But you need to make the player reload the xml.
If the file name was provided to the object using a parameter, you can simply change this DOM attribute on client side. But this will be not enough, since these values are loaded by the flash player on initialization. So changing attribute will have no effect. So you either have to rebuild the object in DOM, or try using swfObject's "dynamic" loading method[^].
I suggest you consult the gallery player's documentation first to see what your possibilities are.

Thanks for the response. Here actually am generating the xml files while uploading the images into database using So these xml files contains the image path and details. So here multiple xml files are generating, and i want to load those xml files based upon the user selection of the given categories. So how can i change the xml file name dynamically in the object parameter value.

I understood your question already. But you did not read my answer attentively. But let's start here: is an swf made by you, or downloaded. In later case: where have you downloaded it, I would have a look at it's documentation.

Actually am planning to load the images in the 3D manner, and i've downloaded the swf file. Here is my code for swf file...

<object id="_slideshowBoxEmbed395170" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="templates/Wall3D.swf" width="900" height="700" style="padding-left:10px;">
<param name="movie" value="templates/Wall3D.swf">
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
<param name="flashvars" value="source=sample.xml">

So in place of sample.xml file, i want to load the different files as per the user selection of photo albums.

No, you still don't get me. "flashvars" are evaluated when the object is initiated. Changing it won't help! You have to delete the object from DOM, and rebuild it with the new xml in the parameter list.
This is it: ?
